Specific Heat Adding Energy to a material Causes the Temperature to go up. Taking energy away from a substance causes the temp. to Go down! 10
Have you ever noticed that on a hot summer day the pool is cooler than the hot cement? OR maybe that the ocean is cooler than the hot sand? Why? The sun has been beating down on both of them for the same amount of time........... It takes more thermal energy to raise the temperature of water that it does the cement! 11
Water absorbs a lot of heat energy before its temperature changes while sand needs little heat energy before its temperature increases. 12
Specific Heat The amount of energy required to raise the temperature of a material (substance). It takes different amts of energy to make the same temp change in different substances. We call the amt required: Specific Heat! 15
Specific Heat of water The specific heat is high because H 2 O molecules form strong bonds w/each other. It takes a lot of energy to break the bonds so that the molecules can then start to move around faster (HEAT UP). 16
